The name Noll is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon
tribes of Britain. It is a product of when the family lived in the area that was referred to as the knoll.
This surname was originally derived from the Old English word cnolle
which means one who lived at the top of the hill or the summit. 
The surname Noll was first found in Yorkshire
where they held a family seat
from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest
and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
The first dictionaries that appeared in the last few hundred years did much to standardize the English language. Before that time, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. The language was changing, incorporating pieces of other languages, and the spelling of names changed with it. Noll has been spelled many different ways, including Knollys, Knoll, Knolle, Knolles, Knowles, Knowlys and others.

Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland.
